Did you know there are over 300 varieties of honey in the United States? Me either, until I took a trip to South Dakota with the National Honey Board to learn about the story of honey. Dealing with my family’s food allergies means I am always looking for simple, allergy friendly ingredients. Although I keep a jar of honey in my cabinet, I hadn’t realized how honey is versatile and all natural! Guess what honey is made of? Honey. That’s it. A bottle of pure honey contains the natural sweet substance produced by honey bees from the nectar of plants or secretions of living parts of plants. Nothing else. Plus, it’s naturally gluten free. I’ve been making honey recipes all week, much to the delight of my family, including these Gluten Free Honey Muffins, because honey can mask the bitterness of gluten-free flours, and this Fruited Honey Lemonade.
